      • 40 decibels is 10 times more powerful than 30 decibels. Each time the decibel number goes up by 10, the power of the sound is multiplied by 10. The number 1100 is like starting with 10 decibels, and adding 10 on 109 times. That means 1100 is 10109 times more powerful than 10 decibels. That is 1 with 109 zeros after. 10 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 000000 times more powerful. I expect a sound wave that strong would have to compress air so dense that the rest mass plus the kinetic energy would mean that the mass of say a metre cubed of air would fall inside it%u2019s own Schwarzschild radius. When a mass of an object is compressed within it%u2019s Schwarzschild radius, the escape velocity required to escape the sphere of matter the compression creates would exceed the speed of light, thus a black hole is formed.Decibels are not a linear scale. For comparison, if you think going 50 mph is fast, going

      • A sound of 1,100 decibels would create so much energy, it would act as an immensely high quantity of mass. This would, in turn, create enough gravity to form an extremely large black hole.First off, a sound of that magnitude would require 1098 watts/meter2. That is an absolutely insane amount of power, far in excess of what we can produce, and is many of orders of magnitude greater than what a supernova creates. So we don%u2019t have to worry about it actually happening. But, now, how would that create a black hole. By E=mc2. Put enough energy into a small enough area and it would be the equivalent of putting mass in that area, causing immense gravity. With energy as great as 1100 dB, it would create enough gravity to cause a black hole to form and an incredibly large one at that.Decibels are a logarithmic unit. That means 20 decibels isn%u2019t 2 times more powerful than 10 decibels, it%u2019s 10 times more powerful. 30 decibels is 10 times more powerful than 20 decibels. 40 decibels
